  • Countryside setting: North Yorkshire is brimful of characterful market towns set amid the stunning Yorkshire Dales, including Richmond on the River Swale, home to an impressive Norman castle, ruined Easby Abbey and the elegant Georgian coaching inn The King's Head Hotel, over 200 years old.

  • Renowned guest list: Having undergone a million-pound refurbishment in the past few years, here you’ll find much to celebrate. Being a Grade II listed building, many period features and original rooms are still in existence, including a ballroom which hosted a piano recital by famous composer Franz Liszt back in 1841. Other illustrious previous guests include world-renowned artist JMW Turner and Boy Scouts founder Lord Baden Bowell.

  • Exploring the great outdoors: Today it retains a welcoming ambience, and with only 24 bedrooms, boasts an intimate air. A full English breakfast will more than set you up for a day out and about, maybe following some of the local walks described by famous travel writer Alfred Wainwright in his walker’s guide. While the town itself offers a number of excellent cafes and restaurants, it’s well worth opting for a hearty dinner on locally sourced regional fare in the hotel's restaurant.


Please note that some dining and leisure facilities may be closed. Please call the hotel before you travel to find out if facilities have reopened.
